“Great place to stay! Super friendly and very clean! Beautiful inside and out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

The Kunstnerhuset (Artist's House) was a wonderful place to place while traveling through Svolvaer. We spent one night in the Artist's House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is not a typical hotel - many of the guests are artists - there for a long period of time. I think of it like a bed & breakfast, without the breakfast. You are staying in a house with a shared kitchen, living room, and dining room. You must go shopping and prepare food on your own, or go to a restaurant in Svolvaer. You'll be about a 10 minute walk from the center of town and stores.
We stayed in March, and there was only 1 other person staying there and he was there for several weeks. Bente (the manager) was super friendly and helpful when we asked her questions - She even let us use her laundry facilities at no cost.
There was another couple that arrived on the day that we left.
The views of this hotel cannot be beat. The landscape of Svolvaer is amazing. The price of the Kunstnerhuset is much more reasonable than a typical hotel in Svolvaer. I would most definitely stay here again if I found myself in Svolvaer!

Stayed at Kunstnershuset during a painting course. And the place is perfect. Beautiful surroundings give you more than enough of inspiration. Besides bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen there is a studio upstairs with inspiring views over Svolvaer and the sea.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

Stayed there on driving holiday trough North Norway. Difficult to find place was the first impression. Very friendly welcome by the host the second. Room basic, shared bathroom (with a few other rooms). Also access to shared kitchen and lounge. Primarily for artists to stay for some time. Some rooms rented out to tourists. So we met some interesting people. Nice place to stay and having a kitchen to uses is big plus in Norway looking at restaurant food prices. Shared bathroom and the price (of £100) for what is essentially a posh student home cost it 2 stars. The 3 starts awarded mainly on atmosphere and the nice host. Would go again though if in the neighbourhood.
Hotel is in walking distance to town centre (about 10 to 15 min)

This lodge is a place for artists to get insperarion and you will see that from the art hiding around the place.

The main reason we came was to get a view of northern lights and thats what we got :D

You can also walk to downtown.

We loved staying here, the room (room 2) was very cosy and had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully equipped and the sitting room has a good TV and sofas. Above all the whole place is spotlessly clean, and very well run.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I had a wonderful stay at the Kunstnerhuset I lofoten. As a single traveller I found it so friendly and relaxed on arrival and throughout. I loved the views from all around the hotel which were much better than expected from somewhere of good value. I took many pictures from my bedroom window alone.
The reception area is so homely and the accommodation is bright throughout. If you sleep light, just take ear plugs!. Its not noisy at all, but it does have thin walls like everywhere else.
An excellent place to say and I will certainly come back again and recommend to all my friends.
